Details from our elopement... (Posted by Tara)

Wow, in less than a month we will have been married for a year already!  And I just realised that I never shared the details on our blog!!!

On April 1st, 2011 we set off on a road trip to Telegraph Retreat at Telegraph Point (near Port Macquarie NSW) to be married the next day, April 2nd, 2011.  Not a single person besides us knew that we were eloping and we couldn't wait to surprise everyone!

Our wedding was a very intimate and relaxed day... and an amazingly perfect day!  

We planned a romantic vintage theme, with a touch of country and little details that meant things to us...

Our cake, made by me the night before

The Ceremony sign we made together

We said our vows under a chandelier
 Our ceremony was at 11am and I walked to meet my soon-to-be husband to the song "you had me from hello" by Kenny Chesney

After the ceremony we had a picnic lunch and had some photos taken, then we rang our immediate family to tell them the good news.  We then texted a photo to other family and close friends, then posted on facebook with the status "he liked it so he put a ring on it"... 

A game of croquet...

In the evening we had an intimate dinner together in a private dining room.

A beautiful day to begin a beautiful marriage...
